31 March -Great Springs

The last day of March, not long until the River opens. It was a lovely Spring day, North wind, fluffy white clouds in a blue sky and sunshine just like the South of France. Too bright without Ray Bans.

The trout were moving, some were rising to hatching buzzers. I caught a couple of Rainbows from Great Springs, both on an olive nymph fished deep. I had a leisurely lunch in front of the fishing hut, BLT and a cup of tea. Proper job.

I had a lengthy chat with Tony the Keeper and I raised the topic of a Catch and Release experiment on one of the lakes. He will consult with some of the other members.

I need to tie some black nymphs for next Monday.
